Completed in August 2012, we designed this contemporary garden for a professional couple living in a new-build home in Church Gresley, Derbyshire.
Our clients had a clear idea of what they wanted – a clean, white, contemporary relaxation/entertainment area with raised planting, a water feature and a means of screening the existing traditional wooden fencing. Being a working couple with little experience of gardening we devised a relatively maintenance-free garden with a lawn of artificial grass.
The plot was a typical new-build back garden; small (10m x 5m), unimaginative and uninspiring. Our scheme features polished sandstone paving, hardwood deck and seating area with integrated storage, spot lighting, a water blade feature and the artificial lawn. The planting has yet to be completed – we’ve split this over the winter to spread the cost – but will incorporates a palette of acid green and purple, with sculptural grasses, two young trees and a small Acer palmatum purpurea ‘Dissectum’. Hard landscaping was by Anthony Cresswell from A C Creations of Whitwick.
Below you’ll see an animated before and after image of the garden.
